    I wonder if they will release it on Blu? I haven't bought the DVDs yet. Do the music cuts harm the episodes?

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I discovered something interesting about the deleted "Wait!" It's actually Charlie saying it! It is Mrs. Bucket's line. I am wondering if he recorded it during prerecording the song, to be used as a cue for Jack Albertson. That way they could just play it back during multiple takes. It should...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    The Night Stalker tv set has an error on episode one. A key sound effect, a tea kettle whistle, is erased from the track, reappears, fluctuates in volume, and is missing again. It is important to the story. I wish they would fix this.

    R.I.P Gilbert Gottfried

    I saw him on something a night or two ago and he looked better than in recent months. I don't know what show it was, maybe Jeopardy. RIP

    BTW, does anyone want to get together and contact the Academy about getting Mr. Harris an Oscar? I am being serious.

    I have been told by someone involved that he absolutely was involved. Again, he is thrilled with the results. That's all I am going to say.

    I understand, but FFC probably won't be around then, and any future restorations will be without his seal of approval. At any rate, the older restoration will be treasured by those who liked it, but the general public will see the newer restoration going forward.

    At any rate, this restoration will be what we have moving forward. If FFC is good with the results, then I am too. These are his masterpieces, as far as I am concerned. His works of art. And his preferred look.

    Smith refused to participate in Regina's comedy bit, as well. I found his speech to be very incoherent.

    Official Oscars 2022 Nominations And Discussion Thread

    They wouldn't risk careers and reputations for a set-up. But they risked them anyway. Between Smith's outburst and his incoherent speech, it seems he has some serious mental issues going on. He tarnished the show for me. It is upsetting seeing stuff like this. I have PTSD from family fights and...

    There needs to be a serious discussion about the software used for degraining and scratch removal. I have seen so many examples of destroyed frames due to the software and human error. Objects disappear under globs of digital paint.

    So did they change the opening A PARAMOUNT PICTURE on the second film to match the other two?

    I don't know how I feel about the redone text. It isn't the same exact font. Look at the letter g. And the Vito Corleone name is almost one word now. In a way, it looks better, but it isn't the original. New and improved, I guess.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    Maybe because there is dialogue right at the end, and FFC wanted to make sure the entire scene would play out without dialogue and Michael walking out being chopped off.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    Official answer: Intentional, because there was an over allowance for the reel change. Since the films won't be seen on 35mm reels, FFC felt the frames should be excised.

    3 seconds have been cut from Part II when Michael and Kay fight, before the final Vito flashback. Kay is sitting on the couch crying. It no longer shows her. Timestamp: 2h43m43s

    This restoration would not have been possible without the heavy lifting RAH did over a decade ago. The team has done a great job, but his name will forever be linked with helping to save a cultural landmark.

    Will lossy mono serve the film well? No lossless for the UHD. I doubt I could hear the difference anyway.

    Little House on the Prairie: building the best possible collection

    Looks like they left in the black leader slugs on some episodes, such as Little Women. No footage is missing, but the sound repeats. I wonder if it aired this way, because they would otherwise have had to redo the reel audio pullups for the entire reel, or it would have been out of sync.

    Press Release SPHE Press Release: 1776 (1972) (4k UHD)

    What were the minor dvd differences mentioned? Just curious. Edit: One is no underscore in the Ben Franklin scene. That was added back for Blu. What else?
